R1K Balkan and Anatolian oromediterranean dry grassland

new search

Closed grassland of deeper acid soils occurring over various bedrocks above the tree line in Greece and Anatolia. It is found on high mountain slopes and depressions where snow accumulates and provides springtime irrigation with melt-water. The vegetation is species-rich, but the dominants and associates vary from place to place. It provides valuable summer grazing for traditional pastoralism.
